手塚治虫 Osamu Tezuka

Tezuka, the greatest manga artist and the pioneer of Japanese animations, created incredible number of manga works and left a legacy to his successors in many ways including experimental animation production methods. His war experience made him strongly aware of the importance of life, which became his life-long theme in his works, leading him to complete his MD degree before his debut as a manga artist. Backed by a wide range of knowledge and profound insight in various fields, Tezuka not only entertained people but also conveyed his deep messages through many of his great masterpieces, having left immeasurable impact to this day. (1928 ~ 1989)
